What's New: This Is What’s Really Behind North Korea’s Nuclear Provocations

by Bruce Cumings | May 2, 2017

Donald Trump was having dinner at Mar-a-Lago with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on February 11 when a message arrived mid-meal, courtesy of Pyongyang: North Korea had just tested a new, solid-fuel, intermediate-range ballistic missile, fired from a mobile--and therefore hard-to-detect--launcher. The president pulled out his 1990s flip-phone and discussed this event in front of the various people sitting within earshot.



Bullet #1406: 'Things are serious': Update on the French Presidential Election

by Stefan Kipfer | May 2, 2017

'C'est grave,' (things are serious) said the monsieur who sells me the papers every morning. A resident of Mantes-la-Jolie (a working class town at the western edge of the Paris region), he laments a lack of clarity on the dangers of the Front National (FN) not only among colleagues and neighbours but also parties and politicians. The situation in France is indeed serious. A week before the second-round vote, Marine Le Pen has made progress in the polls but still trails Emmanuel Macron by a margin of about 18 per cent.



What's New: May Day: Workers' Struggles, International Solidarity, Political Aspirations

| May 1, 2017

For more than 100 years, May Day has symbolized the common struggles of workers around the globe. Why is it largely ignored in North America? The answer lies in part in American labour’s long repression of its own radical past, out of which international May Day was actually born a century ago. It is more important than ever, in the face of relentless capitalist austerity and emerging authoritarian forces on the right, that the North American labour movement reconnect with this history and forge linkages with the international labour movement in the remaking of a socialism for our times.

What's New: May Day: Palestinian trade unions call for intensifying BDS

by Palestinian Trade Union Coalition for BDS | May 1, 2017

On May Day, we Palestinian trade unions are proud to stand with the trade union movement internationally as we collectively resist attacks on our working conditions, cuts to public services and job losses. We lend our voices to the mass rallies taking place internationally uniting trade unions, immigrants and refugees, social movements, and environmentalists fighting for a better future and dignified living.



Bullet #1405: A Day Without Immigrants

by Labor for Our Revolution | May 1, 2017

Millions of immigrants, both documented and undocumented, who lead hard working and productive lives, are also union members. Donald Trump launched his political campaign in 2015 with a racist attack on Mexican immigrants, painting them as rapists and murderers. He made attacks on our Muslim sisters and brothers his political trademark - even going so far as to propose a religious test for immigration.



LeftStreamed: May Day

April 30, 2017

For more than 100 years, May Day has symbolized the common struggles of workers around the globe. Why is it largely ignored in North America? The answer lies in part in American labour’s long repression of its own radical past, out of which international May Day was actually born a century ago. The seeds were sown in the campaign for the eight-hour work day. On May 1, 1886, hundreds of thousands of North American workers mobilized to strike.

Art vs Alt: How We Challenge the Right

How We Challenge the Right
Art vs Alt is a day of conversations and a platform for presentations of work by concerned artists, a day to come together to work out how to collectively confront the dramatic rise of the right.

Culture has always been a major part of left currency and in the present crisis it may be our most important currency. Let’s move it forward. Let’s ask what we should be doing.

The conference is open to anyone interested in the culture and politics of the left. Discussions and plenaries on subjects chosen by participants will be held throughout the day. Artists are also invited to give a 3-minute presentation of their work during four half-hour segments scheduled throughout the afternoon. Come and participate in the presentations and the conversation.

International Conference: Marx's Capital after 150 Years

Marx's Capital after 150 Years
Critique and Alternative to Capitalism

After the eruption of the international financial crisis in 2008, Marx's Capital received renewed academic and popular attention. Leading newspapers throughout the world discussed again the contemporary relevance of its pages. Faced with a deep new crisis of capitalism, many are now looking to an author who in the past was often wrongly associated with the "actually existing socialism"; and who was too hastily dismissed after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

For many scholars today, Marx's analyses are arguably resonating even more strongly than they did in his own time. This international conference will bring together several world-renowned sociologists, political theorists, economists, and philosophers, from diverse fields and more than 10 countries with the aim of offering diverse scholarly perspectives and critical insights into the principal contradictions of contemporary capitalism and, in so doing, point to alternative economic and social models.
